Planet Home Lending Opens New Virginia Beach Branch

May 9, 2019
Planet Home Lending has named 25-plus-year industry veteran Jim Bopp as vice president of national renovation lending
Planet Home Lending LLC has opened a new branch in Virginia Beach, Va., offering home loans for military servicemembers, first-time homebuyers and move-up buyers. Leading the new Virginia Beach location will be Branch Manager Jennifer Franklin, who will be joined in the branch by Mortgage Loan Originator Robin Kader.
"Planet Home Lending is a great fit for Virginia Beach because of their versatile product mix and their commitment to military servicemembers and veterans," said Franklin.
Franklin became a mortgage banker in 1999 while serving as a Navy reservist and ultimately retiring from the Navy Reserves after 24 years.
"As a national top one percent VA lender, Planet Home Lending has helped many military servicemembers use their well-deserved home loan benefits to purchase or refinance homes with no money down and less hassle," Franklin said. "Planet doesn't put any extra requirements on its VA customers. Sometimes lenders will add rules, like having a particular credit score or a large amount of cash on hand. We don't put extra burdens on people, we give VA home loan benefits to people exactly as Congress intended."
